Vinyl Trousers have been in the trend since last Autumn Winter. I know many people like looking at them on other people but feel intimated by the style. I have to say it is probably not the easiest thing to pull off and can possibly looking tacky in a way.
I was going to do an ootd for the look and thought why don’t I just make it into to a Trend post as I sometimes do? I hope it doesn’t get too messy to have two types of posts in one. But it’s always a first time. Tell me how you think about it.
Vinyl trousers are quite similar as leather trousers but with much more glossy look and stronger image. It is edgy, modern, contemporary, sharp, tough and can be harsh or tacky sometimes. For personal taste, when style something so strong, I would calm it down with items with a contrast image than go for all powerful and strong style head to toe. But of course this is very personal, if you want and can pull off a head to toe strong and edgy look. I am sure it can be very cool too. Here, I am using black vinyl trousers in different shapes for styling. But of course there are vinyl trousers in different colours too. If you want, it will be fun to play around with mix and match of colours too.
- Wear them with your usual casual. I think the easiest way is just wear them as normal trousers. Don’t try to style them specially only because they do look quite unnormal. Sometimes, when we try too hard to style something, that is when everything go wrong. Here I am using my usual casual style, sporty style, as an example.
- Give a feminine touch. I have to say vinyl trousers aren’t exactly feminine and can be quite tough looking. By adding something softer and feminine will give a very good balance and I personally really like to mix two totally different styles together. Like the mix of menswear and womenswear together is sometimes even more sexy than head to toe womenswear.
- Tone down with pastel colours. Same as mix with feminine items, a touch of pastel tones down the toughness of vinyl. And vinyl trousers give the all sweet and pretty pastel colours an edgy look.
- Simply monochrome. When in doubt, go monochrome. It applies on all the styles and same as in vinyl. It is so simple that you just swap your regular black trousers with a pair of vinyl ones. With the glossy texture of vinyl will give the whole look a modern touch. Even if you want to go for a pair of red, yellow, green or any colour vinyl trousers, there is pretty much nothing that black and white mix style don’t go.
There are so many ways to wear Vinyl trousers, I have been wearing mine all the times this season. But I am listing 4 different ways which I think will be good for the early spring. And below is me in the last “Simply Monochrome” style in my favourite pair of baggy vinyl trousers. They are in looser shape which is good for spring but I do go size up to give a more baggy look. And know what! They are back in stock with discount in all sizes here! The bag in the photos is a complimentary shopping bag from Mango Committed Collection and the watch is from the new collection, Classic Petite, from Daniel Wellington. Hope you like the look. x
